    While Turning Point USA's Charlie Kirk and Candace Owens were having breakfast in Philadelphia on Monday morning, a group of protesters started to heckle them. Watch the videos below: “We [were] just enjoying life,” Kirk, TPUSA's founder and president, told IJR. “And then they came outside the window and started screaming.” In a video posted to Twitter, it is shown that when Owens and Kirk went outside, a protester poured water on Kirk: Police had to then intervene to prevent the situation from escalating. “Is there a colored-only section for black police officers and black conservatives that I missed,” Owens...

    A brutal video of a McDonald’s worker beating up a female customer who apparently “disrespected” her mom surfaced on Thursday. The video begins with the visitor throwing a milkshake at the employee who is angrily marching toward her. The worker grabs the woman, who is wearing just a small black tank top and gray shorts, and starts pounding her head on a table. The worker throws the customer around so brutally that one of her breasts falls out of her top. The larger woman then pummels the milkshake thrower with wild, swinging blows before tossing her onto a cushioned seat.

    It happened again. On Wednesday morning, Donald Trump's star along the Hollywood Walk of Fame was once again destroyed. The star was totally demolished, not just vandalized, which has also happened numerous times. Los Angeles police told The Hollywood Reporter a call about the star being destroyed came in around 3:33 a.m. When officers arrived, the suspect was gone. Around 6:20 a.m., police told THR a man had been taken into custody concerning the incident. He was described as a 25-year-old man. As of 6 a.m., he was being processed at the LAPD Hollywood division. NBCLA reporter Jonathan Gonzalez tweeted,...
  • Little House on the Praire Books labeled Offensive

    I was sitting on my daughter’s bed reading Laura Ingalls Wilder, and this and other scenes in “Little House on the Prairie” stopped me cold. What had been, in my gauzy memory, a beautiful and pure story was complicated by passages like this: “Why don’t you like Indians, Ma?” Laura asked, and she caught a drop of molasses with her tongue. “I just don’t like them; and don’t lick your fingers, Laura,” said Ma.

    Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch may have offered a clue about who President Donald Trump will nominate to fill the vacancy on the Supreme Court left by retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy, days ahead of the planned announcement on Monday. In a Friday op-ed article for Deseret News, a prominent newspaper in Hatch's home state of Utah, the longtime Republican lawmaker wrote a defense of the coming nominee amid a highly polarized and evenly split Senate. "Too much is at stake to allow politics to corrupt the Supreme Court confirmation process," Hatch wrote. "That's why in the coming weeks, I will lift...

    A Texas mother said she didn’t think twice about shooting a would-be carjacker when the man jumped into her vehicle at a Dallas gas station while her two sons were in the backseat. Michelle Booker-Hicks was at the Shell station along Interstate 35 around 10 p.m. Wednesday when Ricky Wright, 36, attempted to steal her vehicle while she was paying her gas bill, police said. Booker-Hicks told FOX4 Dallas her two sons, ages 2 and 4, were sitting in the backseat at the time. I proceeded to jump in my backseat and told the gentleman to stop, to get out...

    I've been using Bing for a few years now, since I finally got sick of Google's endless parade of commie-celebrating "art". Bing was always nicely photographic, usually just nature and points of interest. But today, its POI is a Minneapolis bridge with "pride" multi-colors on it. (And yes, they do describe their pix, so it's on there specifically.)

    Apple Inc said on Wednesday it will change its iPhone settings to undercut the most popular means for law enforcement to break into the devices,” Joseph Menn reports for Reuters. “The company told Reuters it was aiming to protect customers in countries where police seize phones at will and all users from the risk that the attack technique will leak to spies and criminals.” “The privacy standard-bearer of the tech industry said it will change the default settings in the iPhone operating system to cut off communication through the USB port when the phone has not been unlocked in the...

    (Reuters) - U.S. celebrity chef Anthony Bourdain, host of CNN’s food-and-travel-focused “Parts Unknown” television series, killed himself in a French hotel room, CNN said on Friday, in the second high-profile suicide of a U.S. celebrity this week. He was 61. Bourdain, whose career catapulted him from cooking at New York’s top restaurants to dining in Vietnam with President Barack Obama, was found dead in a hotel room in Strasbourg, France, where he had been working on an upcoming episode of his program, CNN said in a statement. His death comes three days after American designer Kate Spade, who built a...

    On Friday, just days before the election, reports are emerging that the FBI has re-opened the Hillary Clinton email investigation. “The FBI has learned of the existence of emails that appear to be pertinent to the investigation,” a letter from FBI Director James Comey reads. And while Comey didn’t indicate how long the investigation could take, it’s pretty safe to bet investigators won’t come to any kind of decision before November 8th. It may even take months for the FBI to wrap up round two of this. So what happens if Clinton is elected, takes office, and then finds her...

    Trump wants to impose a total ban on the imports of German luxury cars, according to a new report from CNBC and German magazine WirtschaftsWoche. Several U.S. and European diplomats told the news outlets that Trump told French President Emmanuel Macron about his plans last month during a state visit. Trump reportedly told Macron that he would maintain the ban until no Mercedes-Benz cars are seen on Fifth Avenue in New York. ADVERTISEMENT Shares of Daimler, Porsche and Volkswagen were lower on Thursday, shortly after the weekly German business magazine published the report. The Hill has reached out to the...

    The Senate on Thursday confirmed Gina Haspel, President Donald Trump's divisive pick to lead the Central Intelligence Agency. The intelligence veteran will become the next CIA director and the first woman to lead the spy agency, despite concerns about her role at the CIA when it employed the "enhanced interrogation" program that used some tactics broadly considered torture. After controversy surrounding Haspel's qualifications, enough Democrats supported her to secure her confirmation. The chamber confirmed Haspel by a 54 to 45 vote. Six Democrats supported her, while two Republicans voted against her. Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., who was tortured himself and...

    The teenagers tucked their hands into their sweatshirt pockets as they shuffled to form a circle. Some gazed at the asphalt, trying to avoid the game they had been drafted to play. “It’s like hot potato/musical chairs, but with a penis,” said the girl leading the group. The kids gathered on a spring morning in South Los Angeles were about to get a hands-on lesson in sex education. Many health experts say that public health problems are best tackled outside the doctor’s office — that fixing the culture that perpetuates them is more effective than changing a single patient’s behavior....

    During arguments at the Supreme Court on Wednesday, the justices seemed, by a narrow margin, to be leaning toward upholding the the third iteration of the Trump travel ban. Justice Anthony Kennedy, who is often the deciding vote in close cases, for example, made repeated comments suggesting that the court does not usually second-guess a president's national security decisions — even in the context of an immigration law that is seen as banning discrimination based on nationality. If the court does decide in favor of the government — a decision is expected in June — it would be a big...

    WASHINGTON, D.C.—During his much-publicized appearance before a bipartisan Senate committee Tuesday, the false, humanlike contact lens Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had placed over his left eye accidentally fell out, revealing the horrifying yellow lizard eye lying underneath. “Senator, I don’t have that information with me right now,” the tech billionaire said for the seven hundredth time just before the incident. As he moved to take a drink of water to appear like a real human who thirsts, the faux human-eye lens fell out of his eye socket and the awful, piercing alien eyeball underneath quickly focused on the Senator questioning...
